Acting for Screen

Log in to fully participate. A valid NetID is required

Have you ever been bowled over by a great performance in a movie or TV show and wondered how they did that…and maybe how you could do the same thing? In the Acting for Screen Module, we offer an innovative collaboration between Theatre and Film that not only prepares actors for the particularities of working with one another in front of a camera rather than for an audience, but integrates performers into a total filmmaking practice that includes understanding of camera, sound and editing. We believe the best preparation as an artist is to experience enough of the whole process to be a full collaborator in film storytelling, but we also know that in today’s market, the best professional training must give actors the tools to present themselves to the world, whether by shooting your own audition videos, editing your reel of scenes from past work, or directing short films and web content as your own best showcase. Our program offers a range of interdisciplinary approaches to screen performance from among a range of academic programs so as to best tailor the experience to your particular strengths as a craftsperson, as well as preparation for the business of acting, to begin your work as a professional.
